How to keep the seatbelts in proper working order at all times

1) When wearing the seat belts, always ensure they are not twisted and are free to wind in and out.

2) Following a serious accident, replace the belt being worn at that time, even if it does not seem damaged. Always replace the seat belts if pretension have been activated.

3) When cleaning the belts, wash them by hand with water and neutral soap, rinse them and let them dry in the shade. Do not use strong detergents, bleach, coloring or any other chemical substance that could weaken the belt fibers.

4) Do not allow the reel mechanisms to get wet: they are only guaranteed to work properly if they remain dry.

5) Replace the seat belt when showing significant wear or cut signs.
